Back in March I attended the Donna Downey workshop – Inspiration Journal. It was a great class .. heaps of fun ideas!!
Some of these pages aren’t finished yet … but I love that! I can come back another day and some more layers!
I’ve been following Pam Carriker for a while and I always find her work so inspiring … so when her book “Art at the Speed of Life” came out … I had to have a copy!
Only a short way into the book I stopped to create an art journal .. the instructions were easy to follow and I had all the ingredients – denim, watercolour paper, a button and some string.. it was so much fun ..
And so a new obsession began ..
My friend Erin surprised me recently with some very thoughtful gifts … and they made me smile!!
The first was a new art journal … something I really needed … and Erin incorporated my recent challenge to use her big butterfly stamp … I love the results!!
And a set of blank babushka dolls … given my new obsession with drawing little faces … it’s the perfect gift and I can’t wait to play with them!!
Thank you so much Erin … I really love our friendship!!
I found that I had one more page left in my art journal .. the background was already done and I “needed” to do something. Flowers make me so happy and so does this page!
I found that I had a few backgrounds started throughout my art journal … and since there is still a few days left of January I decided to finish them off …
This is actually the last page in my journal … one day while watching the kids play outside I sketched some flowers … so I decided today to work with those drawings and add some doodling around them. I really like the end result.
Simple page today .. it seems that whenever I work with this quote it’s in a earthy tones … maybe next time I’ll add some colour!!
